This grande dame, a block from Bourbon Street, in the heart of the French Quarter, has been a favorite of writers ranging from William Faulkner to Anne Rice and Eudora Welty. Don’t miss sampling a sazerac – a potent mix of rye whiskey, bitters and absinthe – in the Carousel Bar, famed for its rotating merry-go-round lit up like Christmas. While four-legged guests luck out with toys and a treat on arrival, flouncy drapes and striped wallpaper in rooms comfort human guests – when they’re not nosing around the area’s antique shops and bars.

It was named for the Queen & Crescent railroad lines that once connected the Queen City (Cincinnati) and the Crescent City (New Orleans) – high ceilings, exposed brick and subway tiles nod to the origins of this building, in the CBD between the French Quarter and Warehouse District. Rooms feel cozy, with custom wood pieces and navy and white feature wallpaper. From the health-conscious to the hungover, everyone loves lounging in the atmospheric lobby with handcrafted cocktails. Explore the area with your dog – you’re 10 minutes on foot from Bourbon Street and a block or two from verdant Lafayette Square.

In the happening Warehouse District, a 20-minute walk from Bourbon Street is this selection of rooms – see the deco details, the tooling in woods and leathers. Suites add retro turntables, patio rooms add balconies or sun decks. Ask about babysitting for your pet, since the rooftop pool is a top local party spot. The next day, for sore heads there’s always Josephine Estelle, a light-filled spot with a gleaming marble bar: rock u to refuel on lemon ricotta pancakes with sour orange marmalade and cream cheese.

It’s a pet-friendly boutique property where beds, bowls, and ID tags for up to three animals come as standard. Once a candle factory, it retains some of its industrial aesthetic.

You’re across the street from the Riverwalk complex, home to the Southern Food and Beverage Museum, which may inspire you to head back to Omni’s bistro for a catfish po’boy sandwich.
